Just like mixing the ingredients to make coffee taste good, room lightings also requires proper blending. An excellent lighting composition has a various number of light sources at particular levels of the room. Our suggestion is to have layers of light from different accessories which can blend.

Differentiate Ambient, Accent and Task Lightings

Accent and Task Lightings
To successfully insert layers of light, you must balance the three basic types of lighting which are ambient, accent and task. Ambient lighting focuses on the entire view of a room like chandeliers while task lighting focuses on a stable light source about specific tasks mainly floor and table lamps. On the other hand, accent lighting improves the home lightings by building several focal points to make objects like sculptures and arts noticeable.

For ambient lighting, it is better to place one light for every 4 square feet of ceiling. For better results, we recommend you to use LED instead of incandescent lamps to avoid combustion and to reduce electricity charges. Don’t worry, US companies like lamptwist provide a lot of options to improve your home lightings. For task lighting, consider placing a pendant light, which is quite fashionable in bathrooms. Try to add a small bulb on the top of the paintings or any art to make it noticeable for your visitors.

Check The Height of The Ceiling

The ceiling is one of the most important things to determine in your home. Also, if you plan to sell your house, having an 8.5 feet ceiling lowers the total value of it. It is better to have a minimum of 9 feet because it is the standard ceiling height for the NYC units. Make sure that you can reach the ceiling via ladder.

Having a fireplace in a living room is pretty cool to place at home. However, you need to spend a couple of bucks because it is quite expensive especially the equipment. Don’t forget to use materials which is not combustible because it can lead to a fire.

If you can afford to spend a few more dollars, marbleizing is the best choice but if you just want to have a simple yet inexpensive flooring, go for combing. Thus, it is just a suggestion because the living room can look good without the use of marbleizing and combing. It is only a matter of taste.

Conclusion
